An evening of live “radio” theater derived from the uncovered archives of the ultra-obscure Tesla Broadcasting Company (1943-1945). The shows run the gamut from sitcom to thriller, from mystery to romantic-comedy, with forays into westerns, sci-fi and horror to boot. But all of these shows, regardless of genre, are tied to the fictional locale of Tesla City.  ABOUT TCS
